Dear SPARK Families,

May has kicked off at a great start! We had so much fun appreciating our teachers for all the hard work they accomplish. From pancakes & Waffles to Tumblers and T-shirts, our staff was gifted with all they deserve. Thank you families for joining us in celebrating our teachers every day.

3rd Grade STAAR Test/ 3er Grado Examen de STAAR

Dear families,
Next Wednesday and Thursday we will have STAAR Testing will be on this day. Please ensure all SPARKS eat a nutritious filled with protein breakfast before arriving at school, this is a long test and we want them to have the energy to complete it. These days, breakfast at school will be smoothies and fruit, and some students may not like it. If they are eating at school, make sure that they arrive at 7:00 AM so that they have time to eat. All students must be in attendance for the whole day as some of them qualify for extra time and may test longer than 4 hrs.

Make sure students get a good night's sleep and encourage them to do their best. Communicate your belief in them and assure them that they are prepared and will do well.
As a reminder: No visitors allow these days at school.

Thank you for your support.
Ms. Rios
